Kournikova Serves Up Miami Beach Home for Sale
The most surprising thing about Anna Kournikova’s home in Florida?
There’s no tennis court.
Kournikova’s home is now listed on the Miami Beach real estate market for $9.4 million; she purchased the Florida mansion for $5 million in 2000.
While she’s well-known for her tennis playing career, Kournikova is also recognizable due to her striking good looks. At the height of her tennis career, she consistently made the top 10 most searched images on Google. The Russian-born athlete reached number one in the world in doubles in 1999 with doubles partner Martina Hingis. Following several injuries, the tennis player stepped back from her competitive schedule and is now playing for World TeamTennis and is focusing on charity.
Her beachfront home on the luxurious and private Sunset Island, (an area of Florida preferred by many celebs, including her longtime singer boyfriend Enrique Iglesias and rocker Lenny Kravitz), sits right on the water. The 6,630-sq ft Mediterranean-style house is within the gated community on the island and is surrounded by palm trees for further privacy.
According to the listing, the 7-bedroom, 8-bathroom home was built in 2000 and features Saturnia tile and hardwood floors throughout, high ceilings and arched windows, and an updated kitchen with granite countertops. However, what’s more impressive about Kournikova’s home is what’s outside.
The property includes a two-story guest house, sauna and large dock adding to the 156 square feet of water frontage. The large heated pool and Jacuzzi is surrounded by a coral rock pool deck and a covered dining area is “perfect for outdoor entertaining.”
